  • R
  • 2018

Brooklyn parents Alex (Claire Danes) and Greg (Jim Parsons) are lucky to have a kid like Jake. Their four-year-old is bright, precocious, creative—and just happens to prefer Disney princesses to toy cars and skirts to jeans. Jake's 'gender expansive' behavior—as local preschool director Judy (Octavia Spencer) dubs it—is no big deal to Alex and Greg. Or so it seems, until the process of navigating New York City's hyper-competitive private school system opens up a parental quagmire: could Jake's gender nonconformity be just the thing that gives their child an edge in the admissions game? How young is too young to put a label on a child's identity? Is this just a phase, or is Jake truly transgender? Split in their opinions on how to handle the situation, Alex and Greg find themselves navigating an emotional and ethical minefield with one patch of common ground between them: their fierce desire to do what's right for Jake. Transparent director Silas Howard helms this timely, honest, emotionally rich look at 21st-century parenting.

A Kid Like Jake Film Synopsis

On the eve of the admissions cycle for New York City kindergartens, Alex and Greg Wheeler have high hopes for four-year-old Jake. The director of Jake's preschool encourages them to accentuate Jake's gender expansive behavior to help him stand out. As Alex and Greg navigate their roles as parents, a rift grows between them, one that forces them to confront their own concerns about what's best for Jake, and each other.

Very talky and slow to wind up.Great subject matter but every element of the story took forever to be revealed and it was mostly just talking heads. The actors did their level best to make the dialogue interesting and engaging but ultimately couldn't pull off this overlong, talky film. I could have watched a 30 minute version of this film and still gotten as much out of it as I did. If you like stage plays you may like this but for everyone else, I'd say pass on it..Score: 3/5

български език
„A Kid Like Jake” на Силас Хауърд следва историята на объркани родители, чието дете има неопределена полова идентичност, от което следват редица препятствия пред тях при записването на детето в училище.


Четырёхлетний Джэйк – особенный ребёнок. Во-первых, он развит не по годам, а во-вторых, ему нравятся наряды принцесс. Это может стать «визитной карточкой» мальчика при поступлении в престижный детский сад, но чрезмерное рвение родителей угрожает семейному счастью.

Par iz Bruklina traži odgovarajući vrtić za svog četvorogodišnjeg sina koji više voli da se oblači kao princeza nego kao vojnik. U pokušaju da budu dobri roditelji, oni dolaze u sukob u vezi sa tim šta je najbolje za njihovog sina.

Una pareja casada, Alex y Greg, tienen que afrontar un conflicto cuando descubren que su hijo prefiere a la Cenicienta en lugar de los G.I. Joe.

Alex e Greg sempre souberam que o seu filho de quatro anos, Jake, estava mais interessado em contos de fadas do que em carros de brincar. Mas quando a directora da pré-primária salienta que as brincadeiras incompatíveis com as normas de género podem ser mais que uma fase, eles são forçados a repensar os seus papéis enquanto pais e mesmo enquanto casal.

Alex és Greg Wheeler nagy reményekkel viszonyul négy éves fiuk, Jake felé, aki a történetesen jobban szereti a Csipkerózsikát, mint a GI Joe-t. Amikor Jake-et iskolába kellene iratni a szülők azzal szembesülnek, hogy nem képesek megfizetni egy jobb magániskolát. Judy, a Jake óvodájának igazgatója azt javasolja nekik, hogy Jake homoszexuális fiúként jelentkezzen az intényménybe, így ugyanis szintem minden bizonnyal felvételt nyerne az iskolába.

Alex, prawniczka, która porzuciła karierę, by zając się dzieckiem i psychoterapeuta Greg Wheelerowie są małżeństwem. Mieszkają w Nowym Jorku, gdzie wychowują swojego czteroletniego synka Jake'a. Chłopiec jest w pewnym sensie wyjątkowy i rodzice zdają sobie z tego sprawę. Akceptują jego zafascynowanie disnejowskimi księżniczkami i osobliwymi strojami dla małych dziewczynek. Niebawem będą musieli wysłać go do przedszkola, dlatego też szukają takiego, które spełniałoby ich wymagania.

Para esta joven pareja de clase media, aceptar la identidad de género de su hijo y pagar su educación serán duros procesos que pondrán a prueba la fortaleza de su amor.

Alex e Greg Wheeler têm grandes expectativas para seu filho Jake, um brilhante e precoce filho de quatro anos que prefere Cinderela à GI Joe. Na véspera do ciclo de admissão para os jardins de infância de Nova York, ciente de que os pais de Jake não poderiam pagar a taxa de matrícula da escola privada, Judy, diretora da pré-escola do menino, encoraja-os a acentuar a expressão "variante de gênero" de Jake para que ele se destacasse e consiguisse uma bolsa de estudos.

Manželé z Brooklynu se snaží najít správnou školku pro 4letého syna, který se místo akčních hrdinů rád stylizuje do princezen. Zatímco se snaží zorientovat ve svých rodičovských rolích, přibývá hádek o tom, co je pro jejich syna nejlepší. V předvečer zápisů do newyorských školek vkládají Alex a Greg Wheelerovi velké naděje do svého bystrého a předčasně vyspělého čtyřletého synka Jakea, který dává přednost Popelce před Supermanem. Soukromou školku si bohužel nemůžou dovolit. Ředitelka Jakeovy školky Judy je proto povzbuzuje, aby mu pomohli vyniknout tím, že vyzdvihnou jeho nestandardní genderovou identitu, a pokusili se získat stipendium. Zatímco se Alex a Greg snaží zorientovat ve svých rodičovských rolích, narůstá mezi nimi propast, která je nutí čelit nejen vlastním obavám o tom, co je pro Jakea vlastně nejlepší, ale také jeden druhému.

Η Άλεξ και ο Γκρεγκ γνωρίζουν ότι ο τετράχρονος γιος τους πάντα προτιμούσε τα 'κοριτσίστικα' παιχνίδια. Όταν όμως αντιλαμβάνονται ότι αυτό δεν είναι απλώς μια φάση, καλούνται να αναθεωρήσουν τον ρόλο τους ως γονείς και ως ζευγάρι.

Alex und Greg Wheeler sind ein glückliches Paar im angesagten Brooklyn. Ihr vierjähriger Sohn Jake ist ihr Sonnenschein, ein aufgeweckter, neugieriger, weltoffener Junge. Dass er sich für Puppen interessiert und gerne Tüllröcke anzieht? Geschenkt! In diesem Alter probieren Kinder alles einmal aus. Als die Erzieherin in Jakes Kindergarten darauf hinweist, dass das Verhalten des Jungen mehr sein könnte als nur eine Phase, müssen Alex und Greg lernen, dass Jake anders sein könnte, aber eben auch ganz besonders...

브루클린에 사는 알렉스와 그레그 부부는 아들 제이크 때문에 걱정이 많다. 제이크는 로보트 장난감보다 공주 인형을 더 좋아한다. 제이크의 정체성에 대한 진지한 고민을 해야하지만 알렉스는 제이크가 다른 아이들과 크게 다르지 않다고 생각한다. 제이크를 학교에 입학시켜야 하는 부부는 제이크를 위한 선택이 무엇일지 결단을 내려야한다.

Чотирирічний Джейк - особлива дитина. По-перше, він розвинений не за роками, а по-друге, йому подобаються вбрання принцес. Це може стати «візитною карткою» хлопчика під час вступу до престижного дитячого садка, але надмірне прагнення батьків загрожує сімейному щастю.

Framing Agnes summary, synopsis, reviews
Framing AgnesDocumentary2022

The pseudonymous Agnes was a pioneering transgender woman who participated in an infamous gender health study conducted at UCLA in the 1960s. Her clever use of the study to gain access to gender-affirming healthcare led to her status as a fascinating and celebrated figure in trans history. In this innovative cinematic exercise that blends fiction and nonfiction, director Chase Joynt ('No Ordinary Man') uses Agnes’s story along with others unearthed in long-shelved case files, to widen the frame through which trans history is viewed. Through a collaborative practice of reimagination, an all-star cast of trans performers, artists, and thinkers – including Angelica Ross ('Pose'), Jen Richards ('Mrs. Fletcher'), and Zackary Drucker ('Transparent') – take on vividly rendered, impeccably vintage reenactments, bringing to life groundbreaking artifacts of trans history. This collective reclamation breaks down the myth of isolation among transgender history-makers, breathing new life into a lineage of collaborators and conspirators who have been forgotten for far too long.

As a result, she becomes introverted and shut off from her high school peers and prefers to spend time counseling lonely spirits who have unfinished business on earth.

To escape the wrath of the undead diva, Darby must emerge from her self-imposed exile and reinvent herself in Capri’s image, which means befriending and sucking up to the very people she previously shunned.
